Holiday Haul

4 days to go! Tenerife here we come! Whoop whoop!

New holiday stash here :) I didn't go crazy. I do own loads of pretty flowery dresses, maxi and mini. Lots of summery tops and few bikinis. But it's always nice to have something new and top up the holiday wardrobe with new pair of shorts or sunglasses.

*Bikini - Next
*Indian Night Jasmine Fragrance Mist - The Body Shop
*Blouse (will be worn as beach kaftan) - Tesco
*Flowery headband - Primark
*White Jeans - Dorothy Perkins (on sale now for £17)
*Stud sandals - River Island (on sale now for £18)
*Sunglasses - Dorothy Perkins
*After Sun Balm - Nivea
*Dry Shampoo - Batiste
*Daily Moisturiser SPF 15 - Neutrogena (at Home Bargains for £1,99!!!)
*Earrings - Dorothy Perkins (on sale now for £3)

*White thing I will wear instead of a bra under white tops (whatever it's called) - New Look
*Shorts - H&M
*Shirt - New Look (on sale now for £10)
*Strappy glittery sandals - Dorothy Perkins

Now that I look at this list it seems like a lot of stuff! I did get some bargains thou and used my NUS Student discount at Dorothy Perkins and New Look.

First time in my life I am actually excited about packing! No doubt I will totally over pack and not wear half of the stuff I'll take with me.

Shopping my stash - Soap & Glory Wowed Mouth (Super-Colour Fabulipstick)

I like to use my lipstick in the morning and then take it with me to re-apply during the day. Therefore I tend to stay away from lipstick pallets.
Wowed mouth was a Christmas gift from a friend who knows I love all things make-up. I saw the pallet, thought 'I won't ever use this' and hid it in a draw. I found it last week and realised how much of a Muppet I was for neglecting it!

These lipsticks have creamy texture, good staying power and moisturising properties. Little lip brush that comes with the pallet is very handy too. It applies the colour evenly and effortlessly.

The Missing Pink (dusty rose pink) and Man Trap (wearable red) are my faves. These two colours suit my skin tone perfectly. All of the other shades are very wearable too. But I am not a big fan of Naked Beige as it's too brown for my liking.

This pallet was a limited Christmas edition. But you can get all of these these colours in full proper lipstick sizes link

Any fans of Soap & Glory Lipsticks out there?

Royal Blue Maxi Skirt OOTD

After little moan at the weather in my last post, sun surprised us all and came out at the weekend. It still was little windy and chilly at times so shorts and vests were out of the question. I really wanted to wear something summery but had to keep me fairly warm.

I went for royal blue maxi skirt I purchased last month. It's from the teenage section in New Look. No, it's not because my figure is petite, far from it. But I am short so it guaranteed the good length and no dragging it on the floor when wearing flats.

I paired the skirt with simple stripey top from H&M. I got it back in December and only recently realised how many outfits I can pair it with.


*Sunglasses - Dorothy Perkins recently
*Watch - Michael Kors
*Bracelet - New Look
*Bangle - Primark recently
*Belt - Ebay Link!

I hope sunshine will keep it up and stay out of the clouds for a little longer.

Barry M Peach Melba

Hi everybody,

One the good note:

1. It’s Bank Holiday Weekend
2. I am going Tenerife in one weeks time
3. I ordered gorgeous ceramic white watch from Fossil

One the bad note:

1. Weather here is SHIT
2. Struggling to actually receive the watch cause I am at work when they attempt to deliver it
3. I just deleted lots of my lovely comments from the blog by accident while getting rid of spam :(

Other than that I painted my nails peach last week Sunday. Super pretty colour! With Seche Vite top coat it lasted 5 days so far! It's still going strong, no chips, just a bit rubbed off at the ends.

Have an awesome long weekend guys!

Burt`s Bees Richly Replenishing Body Lotion

Hi everybody,

As you noticed I haven`t been posting on here for quite some time. There has been a lot going on in my life (good and bad. I am trying to organize my busy schedule to incorporate  blogging into it.I have missed it and have lots new stuff to share with you guys.

I will start with a short review of an amazing  Burt`s Bees body lotion.
I got it from Boots for quite steep price of £9.99. I don`t regret paying more as it really  helped my super dry skin. I am talking about skin flaking off dryness situation here. Moisturizing effect really does last for as long as the packaging claims. That is about 24h. My skin seems to be loving natural products and I will be definitely trying out more items from this brand.

I apologise for spelling mistakes in this post. I am blogging from a tablet that is extremly slow and drives me insane at the moment. I should be getting my laptop back mid week so no more frustration (broken screen issue involving nail polish - don`t ask).

It is lovely to blog again
